Mayor in the Chair in Pakuranga

News Release

21 November 2012

Mayor in the Chair in Pakuranga

Len Brown will be setting up his chairs in Westfield Pakuranga mall for his next Mayor in the Chair session, on Friday 30 November.

Mayor in the Chair lunchtime events are informal sessions which allow people to get face to face with their mayor. People are invited to come along, wait their turn, then have a brief one-on-one chat with Len Brown, to ask questions or talk about any issue they choose.

They are held regularly in different locations around Auckland, and complement a schedule of regular evening public meetings.

“These events are a very important part of my schedule, and just like last year, I have held them all over Auckland, in town squares, in main streets, libraries and community centres. I value the chance to talk directly to Aucklanders about their experiences living, working, travelling and playing in their communities.”

“I’ve had conversations about rubbish, rates, footpaths, parks, innovative community initiatives and long-time community bugbears. Our council staff and elected representatives keep me well-informed about what is going on in our local communities, but it is invaluable for me to talk to Aucklanders around the region regularly and hear from them directly about their concerns.

“I am always thrilled when people come up and chat to me about their thoughts and opinions on Auckland, whatever the setting. It’s really important to get that input and feedback.”

Len Brown be at Westfield Pakuranga Mall, corner of Pakuranga Rd and Ti Rakau Drive, from 12 noon – 1pm on Friday 30 November.

Well, what Budget 2017 delivered instead in Education and in Health were allocations barely sufficient to maintain the current levels of service delivery More>>
